The 10 day Turmoil HC and HCSSF leagues just closed. Time for some statistics! These are based on the top 14.000 characters, which is what the PoE API allows me to extract. Check them out!

HCSSF Analysis Link

Here are a few observations from me, maybe you guys can spot some other interesting trends :-)
- The race rewards heavily affect how people play. Large spikes of players at the reward levels.
- As usually in HC leagues, almost all characters have ended up dead. RIP.
- Most popular class is the Duelist, and least popular is the Scion
- Most popular ascendancies. HC: Necromancer, Gladiator, Inquisitor. HCSSF: Gladiator, Trickster, Necromancer
- Least popular ascendancies. HC: Guardian, Pathfinder, Deadeye. HCSSF: Guardian, Assassin, Pathfinder
- If you want to live to see the late levels, your ascendancy choice matters a lot. Defensive ascendancies like Champion, Chieftain or Necromancer are much more likely to see the late game than offensive ones like Deadeye, Assassin and Raider
- For some reason Chieftains and Inquisitors live longer in HC, while Guardians live longer in HCSSF
- We have the usual few nutcases with 15 or more chars in the same account, for a total of 800+ levels gained. Well played, you crazy bastards.

I'm just so darn happy for GGG and this game. With its humble beginnings it started out as an interesting and challenging ARPG at a time when ARPGs were few and far between, and then it was changed, morphed, improved on, polished with love, making it new and exciting again and again for anyone who wanted to challenge Wraeclast.
I'm so glad that after 9 years the game and its community is the biggest it's ever been. Thank you for the good times Path of Exile. Let's slaughter some monsters in Mayhem and Abyss and many more to come.

After competing in the previous Mayhem race last season I've decided that airing on the side of caution is a good idea! so i'll be playing a Trickster Essence Drain MoM character, nice layer of defences and is able to do decent damage from a long distance away. What are you guys thinking and why?

- Got to lvl 86 in the HC Turmoil Race and it was a ton of fun. Didn't get a random draw prize but I did get the Mystery Box

- Awesome video, always great to see how far the game has come in each expansion.

- Not sure if I'll play the upcoming Mayhem Race since it's gonna be voided.Maybe just for the prize box in softcore or something like that.

I've seen alot of threads recently asking what others might be playing so thought id make a compendium of cookie cutter builds that can carry you through most of the content for those juicy THICC mtx rewards. General Mayhem lessons i learned from last race STAY away from maps with tormented spirits and be aware of spirits in Tora mission den Ive tried to find a video based guide along side a path of building link on some of these builds but if ive missed some feel free to post and ill edit it in!

Pastebin links are path of building links heres a video on how to use it. gl hf exiles
